With proceeds going towards the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Following news that a new Amy Winehouse documentary will be released in November, the family of the late singer has signed a deal to release an official biopic.

According to The Guardian, Winehouse’s life story will be produced by Monumental Pictures, with her family also acting as executive producers. Shooting is scheduled to begin in 2019, with proceeds of the film going towards the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

“What we want is somebody to portray Amy in the way that she was… the funny, brilliant, charming and horrible person that she was,” said Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse.

He denied suggestions that Lady Gaga would play the role.

“It wouldn’t be Lady Gaga. She doesn’t speak our kind of English.

“I wouldn’t mind betting it would be an unknown, young, English — London, Cockney — actress who looks a bit like Amy.”
